An office that started out small has grown into a leading full-service legal advisor - for domestic and international clients.
Baker McKenzie's Stockholm office is among the leading legal advisors in the Nordics. We offer a full-service experienced team, helping clients, including financial sponsors and their portfolio companies, domestic and multinational organizations and public institutions, navigate legal complexity in local and international markets. Through our strong cooperation with correspondent law firms in our part of the world, we are able to offer seamless solutions covering the Nordics and the Baltics.
The Stockholm office opened its doors at Eriksbergsgatan 46 in January 1991. But the collaboration between the Stockholm founding partners and Baker McKenzie dates back even longer. Through many years of collaboration, the Stockholm office had international experience and a global mindset from the very start. In addition to the an initial staff of 13 Swedish lawyers, a partner from Baker McKenzie's Chicago office spent a year in Stockholm to assist with the integration of the new office.
Since 1991, Baker McKenzie has opened more than 35 offices around the world and more than tripled its number of lawyers, reaching today's capabilities of 6000+ lawyers and tax advisors spread over 77 offices in 46 countries. As the original global law firm, we bring the right talent to every client issue, regardless of where the client is. We partner with our clients to deliver solutions in the world's largest economies, as well as newly opening markets. This is reflected in Baker McKenzie being named the world's strongest law firm brand for 10 years running (Acritas) and the #1 leading firm for cross-border deals over 10 years (Thomson Reuters).
We are global citizens, industry savvy, diverse and have a thirst for innovation. Our strength is our ability to adopt a new type of thinking and use cutting-edge legal technologies to help clients overcome the challenges of competing in today's new world economic order.
